I think you're right on the redundancy thing, or people could be getting really really angry at know it all people posting stuff on a subject that has massively effected their personal lives.
"I merely pointed out blah blah blah" you would have got the same treatment from me. You were trolling, regardless of if you care to admit it, you were trolling for a reaction, got one, then wanted to brag about it.
Imagine knowing what happened and not being able to say anything. Then getting people being able to talk and throw accusations left right and centre and not be able to say anything back. With reasons like "logical explanation" once would be bad, but they ,just get it hundreds of times a day from various sources. With the caveat that if the truth is told they are fired or sued.
There is never a good reason to abuse people, let me get that out there, however there also needs people held accountable for what's caused the reaction.
If the daily mirror would have posted that comment to the staff member there would have been outrage, but because it's an enthusiast it's acceptable?
Unless you read the whole discussion then you're jumping to conclusions that I'm primarily the instigator. I jumped at the defense of others because these clowns who worked for AT came into the chat effing and blinding to others under the assumption the GP were completely oblivious to what had happened.
I admit I do take discussions a bit far and get things heated but I don't get kicks or anything out of it, just a compulsion to respond to imbeciles.
